Yeah, I'm sorry. Genetics may play a factor, but this is horseshet to the 20th degree. As everyone is practically saying in complete unanimity, if you want to lose weight, you'll lose weight.
Over 66% of American's didn't spontaneously mutate their genes and become obese over a generation, sorry. Nor is this true in any other setting. South pacific islanders are highly reputable for being overweight. Have you seen what they eat? Case and point.
Hey, maybe there are some people who have all the forces of nature set against them regarding losing weight. I can tell you probably how many people that is: about the same number as the number of midgets/short people/vertically challenged, whatever the PC term is for them. Very, very, very small. Apparently a user here is currently one (though I dont know if he's obese/morbidly obese per se). Again, supremely rare.
Your argument is that the contribution of genes to obesity is substantial to the point actually of being a decisive factor in their body composition. I am saying, despite whatever laughable data you can conjure (controlled studies of twins and their eating habits? oh, you mean parents filling out surveys to ballpark their kids food intake in front of them and what they do hour to hour? LOL), reality shows us it's not true. You are very knowledgeable, anoop, but your conclusion seems ridiculous, and we just can't swallow this pill.
